Drag & drop to rearrange

Drag & drop to rearrange

Liking the new experience for Dropbox Paper so far! I've got this little issue I want to address. When doing creative projects or writing down notes, there's a lot of rearranging of topics, headers, and photos. Some things are prioritised and then not. Some things make more sense before or after. It would be neat to have a drop and drop feature to rearrange various parts of the document instead of having to cut and paste every now and then. Thanks!

Drop and drag a must  - find it hard to believe it is not possible !!??

A feature that would be incredibly useful for me is the ability to re-order list/table/task items by simple drag-and-frop or a simple set of keyboard shortcuts.  When Paper is being pushed as an 'ideas' platform, surely it is one of the most basic requirements to be able to easily re-order concepts/steps/tasks etc.

 

That said, after years of development, to my knowledge even the mighty desktop version of Word or Excel can't do this simple thing, which is why I have to use an application called To Do List when I want this functionality.

I was just thinking that without drag and drop Paper is way too inconvenient for me to use. I tend to write random thoughts and then re-arranged them as needed. Microsoft OneNote allows to do such a thing, and I use it a lot.

I agree, this would be very helpful

I totally agree. That's why I came here...to see if there was a way to rearrange items.  Drag and Drop is the best- like Checklist . com (but paper can handle embedding code snippets.)

Hear Hear.   Rearranging / reordering items is must useful.

If be happy if this included at least checkbox drag like GitHub issues does

Absolutely.  Please add this wunderlist-like functionality!

If D/box Paper would allow sorting by date created / modified it would be a winner for me.  Until then, I'll be forced to stick with Google Docs or Simplenote.

I agree. It's an absolute must
